Default rc f1

i was just wondering if rc f1 is fast as compared to 4wd belt drive cars. In terms of speed and cornering.. F1 would be faster i think and able to put in 3.5t brushless motor to exceed the speeds? I m not sure about cornering. I m just confused in between with the touring belt drive cars and f1 which is just rwd.

Thanks

F1 with a 21.5 no boost is faster than a 17.5 no boost touring car in terms of top speed. The touring car will still put in faster laps because of its corner speed. F1 with 3.5t? good luck with that.

Mostly in the air not on the asphalt.

We used to race F1 cars and 4wd Touring cars at my track, the 4wd cars had Stock motors and the F1 cars had 540 can motors, and they put in faster lap times!

Of course, the F1 cars were faster in a straight line, it's direct drive, and very light, but the 4wd cars would out handle them.

Don't care about corner if you try 3.5t, it will turn anywhere anytime. ^_^

Although full scale F1 cars are the top formula in racing

F1 RC 1/10 scale cars are the funster class, and are generally the slowest compared to 4WD sedan
F1 cars are only 2WD, do not have sophisticated suspension, thus they lack mechanical grip

Yes, the car will spin extremely easy with that much power. It will be ridiculously fast with a 3.5T

You would have to be so easy on the throttle I think you might need a 100'+ carpet straight to even think about pulling the throttle 3/4 much less wide open.

indeed worrying for a 3.5t but would that shred the spur gear? what would be the best number of turns for a f1 to get quick acceleration and top speed?

Yes
I think Tekin sells a 2.5, you should try that

At one point I used to have an HPI Super F1, which is pretty much equivalent to a WGT car with an open wheel body (200mm, pan car size tires). I ran it at the carpet track with a 10.5 motor on 2s lipo and it was almost undriveable at first from all the power. By the end of the day I could get around the track, but it was super super fast.

I can't imagine what a narrow F1 would be like on a 3.5, especially if you had rubber tires...
